PUBG Mobile is one of the most successful collaborative partnerships with BIGO Ads in 2021. This highly popular mobile game launched three hashtag challenge campaigns in Likee that included: a Halloween Campaign; a Reunion of Classic Modes Campaign; and its PUBG Mobile 3rd Anniversary Campaign.

PUBG Mobile’s campaigns were the top-performing campaigns in the MENA region, these three campaigns delivered over 276 million total impressions and 250 thousand video posts.

The BIGO Ads team oversaw the execution of all three campaigns. In fact, the #PUBGM_HALLOWEEN hashtag challenge was purposefully conceptualized to excite and captivate users with its distinct insight on Halloween and funny interaction experience.

During Halloween 2021, BIGO Ads designed the campaign mechanism to achieve a great balance between the Halloween atmosphere and PUBG Mobile gaming elements. The campaign combined classic festive elements like pumpkins, wizard hats, and zombies, attracting a significant volume of users to use the branded sticker for video creation. This creativity fit in perfectly with the young generation in the MENA region as it embraced entertainment and interactivity.

The campaign was a resounding success and exceeded most benchmarks of Likee in the MENA region. It boosted the recognition of PUBG Mobile at a large scope and helped to get in touch with younger audiences to acquire more new players.
